Hello and I hope someone can help
I have searched everywhere to try and solve this issue I have to no avail!
I installed xubuntu and my screen will only give default connection at 640x480
I have an output from xrandr-q
Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640x480 current 640x480 maximum 640x480
Default connected 640x480+0+0 0mm x0mm

Got the same problem here

Just installed Xubuntu 17.10

First of all, coinbr: you need to start your own thread. Mixing threads just causes confusion to everyone.
